Bulgarians from around the country and the world pay tribute Thursday, May 24, to the legacy of Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius, the creators of the Cyrillic alphabet.
Bulgaria celebrates May 24 as the day of the Bulgarian Education and Culture and Slavic Script, the official Day of Holy Brothers St. Cyril and St. Methodius – the Byzantine scholars who wrote the first Slavic alphabet in 855 A.D., and translated into Old Bulgarian the Bible and the religious literature of Orthodox Christianity.
The city of Sliven also celebrates May 24.
We have interviewed teachers and students what they think about the importance of this holiday and how they think education can be improved.
